When you wash out a rad you need to flush it properly. IE - bleed it so that the flush takes out everything in there. If you get a pocket with something nasty in it it will stay there.

You don't need blitz. That is just acid, quite dangerous and only makes you think you are really cleaning out the rad because it comes out blue/green. That is what copper will do when faced with acid all day long.

IMO? use white vinegar. Flush the rad out with cold tap water (limescale finds it very hard to form in cold water you see) and then shake the crap out of it over a bath and put it somewhere warm so it can dry out.

I've used that method on four loops, and with XSPC EC6 running (in green, red and clear) I have had 0 problems with anything in the loop at all, apart from the time I used Mayhem's Pastel and it went from red to burgundy. Crap, basically.

Warm white vinegar, non dilute, let it sit for 5-10 minutes... can't beat it.
